'Phantom Thread' trailer: Retiring Daniel Day-Lewis could win record 4th Oscar

Although Woodcock is a longtime bachelor with women coming and going from his life, that all changes when he meets a strong-willed young woman named Alma (Vicky Krieps), who becomes his muse and lover.

With the release of the first preview for their new, film Phantom Thread, the mysterious final project for Day-Lewis, we finally get a peek at what they've been up to-and it doesn't disappoint.

Based on the glamorous world of 1950s haute couture, Phantom Thread-which has thus far been shrouded in secrecy-is about a celebrated London dressmaker who finds his carefully tailored life unspooled by a rather intense-looking love affair. "When I was a boy, I started to hide things in the linings of the garments".


The Phantom Thread marks the second collaboration between director Paul Thomas Anderson and actor Day-Lewis, who teamed up in 2007 for the academy award-winning film There Will Be Blood. No reason was given for the retirement. Three-time Oscar victor Daniel Day-Lewis, who announced his retirement from acting in June, will round out his own celebrated career playing Reynolds Woodcock of The House of Woodcock, alongside Lesley Manville as his sister Cyril and Vicky Krieps as Alma, his strong-willed muse and lover. Plus, this movie will feature Anderson behind the camera for the first time as cinematographer, and Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood is back to compose the score. We'll have our thoughts up soon, but we wanted to bring you the trailer as soon as possible.

It looks like we can expect a stunning last performance from Day-Lewis, and a handsome new film from Anderson.

There has, however, been a cloud of mystery surrounding Phantom Thread from day one. The film will be released in theaters on Christmas Day.
